Does anyone know how to hide a program from the taskbar when
it is minimised using Borland C++ Builder. Visual Basic has
a property on the main form that allows you to do this, something like "hide from taskbar" however builder doesn't appear to have a similar function.

When minimising your application or form you have to call the ShowWindow(Handle, SW_HIDE) on the handle of the thing you want to disappear.
In the form this is just 'Handle' and for the application this is Application->Handle.
